Barre Historical Society at “Vermont Gives” 2016!

Tuesday, June 7, 12:00 am to 11:59 pm  Vermont Gives!

On May 24, the Governor issued a proclamation [view as PDF] making Tuesday, June 7,  “Vermont Gives” 2016. The event is the collaboration of Common Good Vermont with the Vermont Community Foundation to create the energy and “buzz” that has been very successful in fundraising for various local days of giving around the country.

The Barre Historical Society is taking this opportunity to participate because we are currently raising funds to repair the historic brickwork of the Old Labor Hall and the Union Cooperative Store bakery building. This project was the subject of the Old Labor Hall’s spring 2016 fund appeal Old Labor Hall Spring Appeal 2016 [view as PDF].

We are hopeful that this event will give people who are not familiar with our preservation projects an opportunity to give. To donate at the “official” Vermont Gives website, just click on the bright green button at the top of this post.
